Columbus Day

Yet another national holiday that I don't get off from work. Oh well. Today commemorates the discovery of America, which was first celebrated in 1792 on the 300th anniversary of Columbus's discovery of the Americas.

One of my favorite quotes for the holiday: "A holiday for Columbus? The man takes a wrong turn and whipped out half an indigenous race."

To commemorate:

Mr. Columbus - Grace Potter & The Nocturnals
Cortez The Killer - Neil Young
